Welcome to the team. You can't identify a SS by the vin number for 62. Impala SS was a unique model from 1964-1967 meaning that only those years are identifiable by vin, all other years SS was an trim option.
You need to to decode the trim style from the trim tag to see if it came with bucket seats originally. I believe in 62 SS was the trim option that included bucket seats, somebody please correct me if I'm wrong. Basically NO bucket seats NO SS
Thanks 67ss.I have one more question /comment. I understand that you can't identify the 62 impala from the vin tag except for the bucket seats. On my vin tag on the firewall under the section "ACC" it's stamped ACC SS-K . if that doesn't mean super sport what does it mean? Again thanks for the feedback
Interior code 867 codes to a fawn bucket seat SS interior.

SS is obviously for Super Sport and the TRIM code 867 confirms that. I'm 90% sure that K is for tinted windshield. I have several other tags from Flint assembled cars on my database that have the ACC code 'K' and the common option is tinted windshield. I know it's not tinted glass - all windows because that code is 'A'.
